Released on May 7 2019.

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.0.3 includes several fixes and adjustments to Dragons found in Elsweyr, thanks to your feedback during the testing event last week. We also have several fixes for Sunspire Trial and Elsweyr quests, along with some additional fixes and adjustments for combat abilities (including Incapacitating Strike and DK Standard).

This week, we have the upcoming Orsinium Celebration Event activated on the PTS for testing – we would love to have your feedback and any bug reports! Additionally, we have performed a new character copy from the PC/Mac European megaserver in order to test a new fix for login issues some of you were experiencing last week.

The size of this patch is approximately 468MB. Thanks for all your feedback so far – we greatly appreciate the time and effort everyone has put in!

Morrowind Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Dungeons & Group Content[edit]


Wrathstone Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Dungeons & Group Content[edit]


Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Combat & Abilities[edit]

  • Casting a fear on an enemy while they are midair will no longer cause them to appear to float.
    • Note this was purely a visual error on remote client screens. They were not, in fact, instilled with so much terror they forgot to gravity.
  • Ardent Flame
    • Dragonknight Standard:
      • The rock textures now better align with the broken ground textures from these abilities.
      • Increased the duration of this ability and the Standard of Might morph to 16 seconds at all ranks.
      • Dragonknight Standard will now rank up in 1.1% damage per rank.
      • Fixed an issue where these abilities were being considered Direct Damage, rather than Damage over Time.
        • Shifting Standard (morph): Fixed an issue where this ability was being removed before doing its final damage tick.
    • Searing Heat: Fixed an issue where the duration extension portion of this passive was not applying to Dragonknight Standard or Standard of Might.
  • Assassination
    • Incapacitating Strike: This morph no longer applies Minor Mangle or Stuns the target when cast with 120 or more Ultimate. Instead, it now Silences the target for 3 seconds when cast with 120 or more Ultimate. Additionally, while slotted, it now grants Reave, which restores up to 100 Magicka and Stamina when dealing damage with a Light or Heavy Attack on a target with a negative effect active on them.
      • Developer Comment: After collecting much feedback from forum threads and other outlets, we noted a lot of the feedback on how Mangle's operation was far too niche in terms of engagement due to how the debuff works. While the theme was aimed at helping the Nightblade single out an opponent and put them closer to death's door, we missed the mark in delivery. We want to retain the idea of the Nightblade isolating their target and gaining a few precious seconds of denial on the target's ability to recuperate, but we wanted the defender to at least be able to reposition while those seconds count down, so we have removed the stun in place of a Silence. Additionally, much like Soul Harvest, there is a passive gained for slotting the ability. However, this passive effect makes up a much smaller portion of the ability's power, since Silences are such powerful disabling tools.
  • Shadow
    • Dark Cloak:
      • Fixed an issue where the Minor Protection granted from this ability was additive rather than multiplicative.
      • This ability will now heal for 6% of your Maximum Health per tick rather than 4.5%.
  • Dual Wield
    • Rend: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs were not updating their hit boxes when fighting Dragons.
  • Medium Armor
    • Wind Walker: Fixed an issue where this passive was applying its cost reduction to Pummeling Goliath's special bash attack.
  • Psijic Order
    • Race Against Time:
      • This ability no longer becomes cheaper as it ranks up.
      • Reduced the Snare and Immobilization immunity to 1 second from 4 seconds.
      • The immunity's duration now increases as the ability ranks up, up to a maximum of 2 seconds.
        • Developer Comment: Since Accelerate is already such a powerful ability granting both damage and mobility potential at reduced costs, we wanted to ensure other abilities that grant similar functions of snare or immobilization immunity still had a place in builds. This is also seen with the Protective Plate ability, which already grants an incredibly powerful base function, so the standard 4 seconds duration is halved.

Itemization & Item Sets[edit]


  • Fixed an issue where the value of an enchantment could decrease if you swapped to a different weapon with a poison equipped.

Item Sets

  • Asylum's Perfected Dual Wield: Fixed an issue where this set was not applying its bonus to Blade Cloak and its morphs.
  • Coldharbour's Favorite: Added a beam of light to Honor to help highlight its position when it was activating.
  • Eye of Nahviintaas: The cost reduction granted from this set now applies to Bash, Dodge Roll, Break Free, and Sprint. Eye of Nahviintaas's 6 second cooldown is now applied per target.
  • False God's Devotion: Fixed a visual error where this set would cause your character to glow green, rather than blue, when killing an enemy.

Base Game Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Art & Animation[edit]


  • The texture of the Baker's hat for Argonians now matches the texture on other races.
  • The Baker's hat now sits properly on Argonian and Khajiit heads.
  • The tail on the grey World Boss Dragon is now properly attached.

Exploration & Itemization[edit]


  • The Skill Respecification Scroll obtained via the Level-Up Rewards system will now use the updated skill respec system, rather than the old method (of simply un-spending all of your skill points).
  • Fixed an issue where monsters and Heavy Sacks were spawning too fast in some areas of Malabal Tor.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in blue-quality Crown foods being stronger than blue-quality crafted foods. The math was fuzzy, and has been groomed for presentability.



  • Renamed the "Orcish Figure, Strength" furnishing to "Orcish Statue, Strength", to better represent its formidable stature.
  • Corrected numerous issues with effect interactions on the Target Iron Atronach. Previously, it was possible for the permanent versions of effects to be double-stacked or scrubbed off by certain player abilities in unintended ways. Additionally, it was calculating values for Fracture and Breach incorrectly.
  • Furnishing Recipes for Sarcophagus: Lid and Sarcophagus: Basin will now have a chance to drop anywhere, not only in Elsweyr.



  • The Announcement Panel will no longer display automatically on login while in tutorial zones.

Alliance War

  • Fixed an issue that allowed you to slot normal skills on top of Volendrung's abilities.
  • Added additional animations to the Volendrung meter when you gain AP.


  • Fixed an issue where quest pins for crafting Writs could fail to swap to the Writ turn-in locations.

Gamepad Mode

  • Fixed an issue where the pre-purchase mount for Elsweyr could occasionally fail to preview in the Crown Store.
  • Break Free and Bash will now work more reliably when pushing both buttons simultaneously.

Encounter Logging

  • Changed the default setting for being Anonymous in the Encounter Logs to On.

Guild Finder

  • The Guild Finder will no longer show old data after a long search.
  • Fixed multiple UI errors that could occur in the Guild Finder.

Guilds & Guild Traders

  • Fixed an issue in the Guild Trader Bid UI where the defaulted guild wasn't your first guild.

Zone Guide

  • Fixed an issue where players under level 10 could use the Zone Guide for Cyrodiil/Imperial City, which isn't available until level 10.
